"Enter" does not work when browsing dialogs without mouse

Thu Jan 08, 2015 6:38 pm

When in a dialog such as File->Save, I'm used to being able to navigate around the hierarchy using the mouse, where Enter will have some effect such as entering the currently highlighted directory. But it seems to have no effect.

Also, if I've typed a new name for a file to save, I still find that Enter does not have the default action of executing the Save (as in most other programs) instead I still have to reach for the mouse and click "Save".

Maybe trivial but every little helps :-)

Hi,

The Open/Save dialogs vary a lot depending on the platform.
On what platform (Windows, Linux, Mac) are you running Oxygen?

This is on Linux (CentOS 6.4) with Oxygen 16.1.

This is the current level of integration between the Java virtual machine and CentOS's window manager. Not ideal, but maybe a future JVM version that we will include in the Oxygen install kit will pass on the Enter key pressed in the Java application to the default button of the native dialog box. The JVM acts as a container to the Oxygen application and it is supposed to pass on all key events generated by the Java application (the Oxygen application in this case) to the underlying native dialog box of the Linux window manager.
